5 Benefits of Home Insulation
When you think of insulation, you probably think about how insulation can keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. In reality, though, insulation is beneficial for your home all year round. At M&M Weatherization, we offer the best home insulation materials for your attic, walls, and floors. It’s is a great investment, and here’s why:
Comfort and Energy Savings
Because insulation will keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, you and your family will stay comfortable all year round without having to crank up your HVAC unit, rely on extra blankets, invest in fans, or settle for a too-hot or too-cold home.
Did you know that a home that is under-insulated or not properly insulated can lose between 20% and 30% of its energy? Air leaks around your windows and doors or in your attic can waste your energy. That means that your heater and your air conditioner will have to work harder to keep your home warm or cool (and a harder-working HVAC system means a higher energy bill). With proper home insulation, you can keep your home efficient and keep your energy bills down.
Sound, Carbon Footprint and Resale Value
No one likes to hear noise from outside, and that’s where home insulation comes in handy. Home insulation helps to absorb the sounds that bounce off of your attic, walls and floors, making your home a quieter place to live and relax.
If you’re interested in living a “green” lifestyle, the right insulation (and the right amount of it) can help you do that. Since insulation allows you to use less energy and in return, produce fewer emissions, you’ll reduce your carbon footprint and your impact on the environment.
When it comes to insulation, not many people think about its resale value. If you’re thinking about selling your home in the next five years, updating your insulation can be the difference between a fast sell and a slow sell.
